Global streaming service Netflix has tapped comedy legend Carol Burnett for a new original unscripted comedy,

A Little Help with Carol Burnett, produced by dick clark productions, features a panel of straight-talking four to-eight-year-olds offering up their opinions in front of a live studio audience. Burnett and her guests will reveal how different generations go about solving life’s biggest dilemmas.

In each episode of the 12 x 30-minute series, both celebrities and everyday people will bring their real-life issues to a group of kids who offer no-nonsense guidance.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be working on our first series with Netflix, and to be working with a comedy legend like Carol Burnett is truly a dream come true,” said Mark Bracco, EVP, programming and development for dick clark productions, in a statement.

A Little Help with Carol Burnett will premiere on Netflix in 2018.
